Hot Aug-Sept

We've stayed in Angeles National Forest a few times and I would really recommend staying out of the area during August and September; Spring is beautiful though.

Pros:

  • The scenery is gorgeous. The tall pines we all love.
  • There is a ton of hiking near by and lots to do.
  • Dog friendly.
  • Quiet
  • Perfect temperatures in spring and early summer.
  • Water on site.
  • Abundant Wildlife coming through camp.

Cons:

  • Don't fish the local pond, Jackson Lake. It's full of litter & the fish looked unhealthy.
  • Right on the highway (but it's not highly traveled at night).
  • You do have to drive to hike.
  • Extremely hot in August & September.
  • Abundant Wildlife coming through camp. This has included bears sniffing out tent in the middle of the night & coyotes coming through… Personally I think it's awesome, but I know it's not everyone's cup of tea.
